From MotoGP site, Yamaha, Tech 3 and Monster are all working very hard to keep Crutchlow at Tech 3. They expect Cal will make a decision before Indy.
I don't think they actually need to offer Cal more money than Ducati. They just need to be close. They also offer Cal a better chance to finish races on the podium and increase his net worth.
Ducati needs a slap in the face.
If Cal turns down Ducati, who will be the next choice?
